Through a business acquaintance I was directed to Daniel Tirapelli with Crux Design, described as a “bad ass” (in a good way!) when it came to design. I had a need for a new look, a new logo, business cards, a website – the works – and I wanted to get it right. Dan's work proved to be professional, elegantly sparse and efficient. I was impressed by both Crux Design's portfolio and Dan's personal attention to design and detail. The result was a true collaboration into something unique and meaningful that I am proud to have representing my company. I highly recommend Crux Design for anyone interested in high quality work with excellent service. They were extremely easy to work with and their skills are top notch.

Dan Tirapelli is the creator of my website.  He is truly an amazing talent.  When I first met him to discuss the project, he took the time to get to know me, my business and my objectives.  He even followed up with further phone and email discussions to get my vision and needs correct. I knew I had found the right web designer just by the first proof.  Throughout the design process, Dan was in constant communication and rapidly responded every time I had a question or concern. Dan is a constant professional.  I was so impressed with his creativity and vision throughout the design process. The final creation was silky smooth, comforting, soothing and beautiful.  As a plastic surgeon, these are characteristics I seek to achieve in my own work. In short, his work speaks for itself.  Dan is a true digital artist of the 21st century and I recommend him without reservation!
